First Monday is June 1, 2020

We will be having our June 1st meeting and I hope you will make your plans to join us.

A new way of listening to social media conversations is happening. Univ. of South Carolina’s School of Journalism and Mass Communications Social Media Insights Lab will be our topic with Kait Park, Manager, Social Media Insights Lab Manager as our speaker.

This is a inside look at what South Carolinians are honestly saying - “I call it the canary in the coal mine,” Park said of social media conversations. “It’s a barometer. Social can show where excitement, pressure, and fear lie.”

First Monday cares about our members so please only make plans to join us if you are well. The Club will space seating and table to maintain social distancing for the safety of our group.

Remember our meeting begins at 12:00 and we're done by 1:00pm. Plan to come and bring a friend. If you need to cancel a reservation or add a guest please click Register Now and make your changes online by May 28 2020 by 12:00 noon. After the close date you are responsible for payment.
